About this title

Synopsis:

How to Create Tree Sculpture by Sal Villano My first book offers complete step by step fully illustrated instructions, clearly showing how you can create three very basic types of wire tree sculptures. All material and tools needed to create these tree sculptures are readily available through easy to locate sources, such as craft stores, hobby shops, hardware stores and florists. This book is the culmination of years of creating wire trees, and other natural forms, using only different types and grades of wire. Clearly written and profusely illustrated by Sal Villano, the detailed instructions are very easy to follow. You will be guided step by step, in the creation of a Willow Tree an Oak Tree and a Wind Swept Tree sculpture. Upon completion of the three small trees you will then be able to create many of the other larger wire tree sculptures shown on the authors web site at: www.salvillano.com

About the Author:

Sal Villano was born in New York City in 1944 into a large extended family of many artists. So, at a very young age he was always very aware of art in his life and was naturally attracted to expressing himself visually. He attended public grade school, high school and college. He also studied at The Art Students League in Manhattan. While still in college he assisted his uncle Charles Santaniello, a sculptor, in creating commercial displays for many New York businesses. And helped produce parts of an exhibit for a Worlds Fair in Europe. It was this time spent working with his uncle that he realized he too wanted to be a sculptor. After graduating college he went to work as a commercial artist. In 1969, after several years at this position he started his own art studio with another artist, this partnership provided the opportunity to produce a wide verity of commercial work. Some of the clients they created two dimensional and three dimensional work for are national and international companies. It was at the time he spent at the Art Students league that Sal created his first wire tree sculpture, While constructing an armature to support a clay figure, he noticed that the wire he was using could also be bent, twisted and wrapped to create a tree sculpture. Since that day, many years ago, he has created thousands of tree sculptures of various wire types and gauges and each carefully placed onto a base that is a vital part of the total piece. Whether viewed in direct sunlight casting harsh shadows or in soft candle light creating a gentle form, the tree sculptures created by Sal Villano each take on a personality of their own. As in nature, no trees can ever be created alike. All the sculpture of Sal Villano can be view at: www.salvillano.com
